Your close but not quite its more specific than that but your in the ball park
i will see if anyone can give me the exact answer but you are right in the aspect of a commissioned officer that was enlisted but not just started their career as enlisted so lets see if anyone ca get the correct answer

I am Navy veteran and familiar with the term Mustang as defined above. Looking to hone in more precisely to the answer, my research came up with this: It was a name the naval academy graduates referred to as thoroughbreds called the non commissioned officers who rose through the rank and file of the enlisted. The term Mustang ultimately became a badge of honor.

your almost spot on the term refers to going through the enlisted ranks and making "Chief" or E-7 in the navy then commissioning as an officer a short time later. However the term only refers to E-7's that go officer not E-6 and below so the actuall term is for a Chief to go Officer and not only is it a great career choice but you are respected highly amongst other officers because of the prior enlisted time as a chief.
